    Dvla And Changing From 9 To 5 Seater Mpv

    I had trouble getting insurance as it was classed as a 9 seater minibus. I took pictures of the van as a 5 seater. I got a video walk around and pictures of the front single seats and the middle 3rd row. I had a rug in the back and no seats. Would DVLA accept that or do I need to have the van...

    Camper Or Not?

    My T6 conversion will NOT have an awning. It will have an Austop pop-top, side windows (but not in tailgate), Cycle rack, colour coded side stripe and pop-top, RIB bed, gas stove, sink etc.. Does the pop-top and / or the absence of an awning mean it can only be registered as a 'van-with-windows'...

    Dvla Petition

    Reclassification To "motor Caravan"

    Hello All, we have just had the van converted with a 130RIB bed and slimline units. It has been fitted with a single burner/ sink as a double one wouldn't fit. Question is, has anyone been refused change of classification with a single burner as the DVLA states it must be a two ring burner.
